SOUTHERN RITES documents one Georgia town's painful struggle to progress while confronting historical issues of racism, equality, and justice. Directed by celebrated New York Times Magazine photographer and filmmaker, Gillian Laub, SOUTHERN RITES is a hauntingly intimate portrait, that reveals the horror and humanity of two complex, intertwined narratives: one revealing racial wounds that are reopened following the murder of a young black man by an elderly white town patriarch. The other follows an historic campaign to elect its first African-American sheriff. Both stories chronicle courage in the face of injustice. Broadcast nationally on HBO, Laub's film captures a world caught between eras and values with extraordinary candor and immediacy - and ultimately asks whether a new generation can make a different future for itself from a difficult past.
SOUTHERN RITES provides thought-provoking nuances that are necessary for facilitating deeply meaningful discussions about racial justice in America.
